“No matter how successful I am, I still feel like a failure. I worry that everyone will find out I’m an imposter, and my accomplishments were all flukes.” Sound familiar? I work with driven, smart, conscientious women in their 20s and 30s who struggle with self-criticism, perfectionism, anxiety, and ‘imposter syndrome’ - feeling unworthy of your successes. Your inner critic can steal away so many moments of joy and make you lose sight of your true self. Ready to make a change? Therapy can create space for confidence, clarity, self-worth, and genuine fulfillment.

Hardship and struggle are part of the human experience and change is always on the horizon. With the right therapeutic chemistry (a place where you can be unfiltered and unapologetic!) you have the capacity to discover who you are, what you’re worth, what you need, and decide how you want to move forward. I meet you with warmth, silliness, non-judgment, and a deep respect for cultural diversity as you work through: Personal Development, Burn Out, Social Anxiety, Major life transitions, People Pleasing, Anxiety, Stress, Perfectionism, Setting Boundaries, Depression, Self-Esteem, and Relationship Issues.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

In my years of practice, my focus has been centred around individuals from different walks of life (i.e race, religion, sexual orientation). Particularly, ones who have trauma, body image issues, phobias and/or are anxious, depressed, stressed, destructive, angry, lonely, abused and in or have been the child welfare system. In regards to my approach, I am genuine and compassionate, but remain equally honest and direct. Rather than bombarding clients with endless questions, I aim to engage them through meaningful methods and creative interventions.

Strength-Based Counsellors
If you're looking for Strength-Based Therapy in Toronto or for a Toronto Strength-Based Therapy Counsellor these Counsellors provide Strength Based counselling.

This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on you best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change worldview to one that is more positive. A positive attitude, in turn, can help your expectations of yourself and others become more reasonable.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
